CEH at the British Hydrological Society National Symposium

Several CEH scientists are in Birmingham this week at the 12th British Hydrological Society National Symposium. This year’s theme is “Challenging hydrological theory and practice.”

The symposium, which takes place from 2-4 September 2014, is one of the main meetings for the UK’s hydrological community, a community in which CEH plays a key role, through both our research on issues such as water resources, floods and droughts, and our extensive hydrological data management remit.

CEH has a stand at the conference. Visitors are being shown this video highlighting the wide range of hydrological research we carry out:

Ten CEH staff are speaking at the conference on a wide range of subjects. Their presentations are as follows:

1. Natural or designer environmental flows for a changing world? Prof Mike Acreman

2. Predicting physical habitat sensitivity to abstraction. Cedric Laizé

3. Overdispersion in peak over threshold (POT) flow data and its effect on flood frequency practice.
Dr Ilaria Prosdocimi

4. The new FEH rainfall depth-duration-frequency model: results,
comparisons and implications. Lisa Stewart

5. What do we talk about when we talk about drought? Jamie Hannaford

6. Real-time modelling of surface water flooding hazard and impact at
countrywide scales. Dr Steven Cole

7. Presentation of the new CEH-GEAR dataset: fine resolution daily and monthly
areal rainfall estimates for the UK for hydrological use Dr Maliko Tanguy

8. Can land use and land management make a difference to water
availability? Helen Houghton-Carr

9. How do we want to access hydrological data over the web? Matt Fry

10. Ensuring UK hydrometric data is fit-for-purpose through a national
Service Level Agreement. Katie Muchan
